Must see · Geologic Formation · Landmark
Accessible by a vintage tramway and a modern cable car, Great Orme is a prominent headland commanding extensive views of the area. Composed of limestone formed over a period of more than 300 million years, these old cliffs abound in fossil remains of primitive fish, sponges, corals, mollusks, and other invertebrates. The headland is part of a nature reserve that includes a Bronze Age copper mine, landscaped gardens, a parish church, and an award-winning summit complex. Tourist facilities include a gift shop, cafeteria, visitor center, play area, and hotel. Stop by on a clear day for a sweeping view stretching all the way to the Isle of Man.

  • You must visit here if you are visiting Llandudno. We drove round the Orme - and stopped for photos along the way, which literally takes 10-15 minutes. There is a charge. 90% of it is one way apart...  more »
  • Amazing views, you can walk as much as you like around it cafe on the top,3 ways to get up there, walk, cable car or we did the 103yrs tram, saw the Welsh goats who are wild and rutting at the time.....  more »
  • Beautiful place to visit views are out of this world
  • Nice views at the summit but not much else to do. Drive up very narrow road to get to the top. All in all above average but nothing epic in truth.
